This meant on a chilly Sunday morning we packed the car and were off north to just outside Derby for the Centaura shoot.
This was to be a bit different to a normal open shoot as it would be a 36 target wooden arrow only. So no crossbow or compounds, just longbows, afb and recurves in hunting tackle classes. (Sorry nearly forgot the primative class.) Still it saw over 80 people attend in the mix of classes. Here is a link to last years Trophy shoot report.
The course itself comprised of some new and some very familiar shots.
The now infamous polo shot returned, this time with a 3D owl target, though I think it was a little too close to the archers as I think some lower poundage bows might struggle to clear it.
The course was a mix of 3d and paper faces set at sensible distances in the most part.
Lunch break was from 12:30 -1:30 and this slowed down the day a little bit but we’d finished by 3 pm
Despite predictions the rain stayed away but it was a cold day.
Sadly there were no trophies for me this year, not surprising really as am still coming to grips with the flat bow and building my own confidence in it. Sharon won ladies hunting tackle again so the trophy returns for another year.
Thanks for reading
